Jenkins keeps firing as rivals draw a blank
Thursday, 30th August 2001.
PAUL Jenkins bagged his third goal in three games to help Haverhill to a 3-0 home win over Warboys.
Mark Brandt opened the scoring after quarter of an hour after a ball in by Neil Hammond, and Jenkins made it two 10 minutes later after a long ball from keeper Dave Walton was headed into his path by Richie Walker.
Rovers continued to look the more dangerous and as previously undefeated Warboys went forward looking to salvage something, substitute Brian Holmes rounded off the scoring in the 88th minute after good work by Brandt.
Haverhill manager Paul Goodman was more pleased with the clean sheet than the number of goals scored. He added: "We had a few players missing, but the shape if the side was a lot better than it has been."
Warboys joint manager Ian Jones said: "Haverhill were just a yard sharper in the head and on the grass and they seemed to adapt to what was pretty stifling weather."
CAMBRIDGE CITY RESERVES
They came from behind twice to claim a 2-2 draw at home to Brightlingsea.
Goals from Warren Taylor and Matt Mitchell-King were enough to for a share if the spoils for the young Milton Road side.
They went into their home clash with Thetford leaderless after Barry Cook’s shock resignation as manager after just two games at the helm.
Secretary Ray Bennett said: "It just came out of the blue, I don’t know why he resigned, but we are back to square one again looking for someone else.
Players Mark Allen and John Garner took charge, but could not stop March from sinking to a 3-1 defeat. Thetford were 1-0 up at half-time thanks to a breakaway goal and made it two up in 60 minutes when the March defence was outpaced.
Carl Wylie threw March a lifeline, flashing a shot from the left wing into the net five minutes later before Thetford killed off the home side’s hopes five minutes from time.
